I'd kill for symbolic links too, but can they be mapped back to the
FAT file system? I guess "shortcuts" are similar but I've never quite
figured out how to use them like symlinks.
If symlinks can't be mapped to FAT, then perhaps this could be done as
pseudo-links just for rockbox. Perhaps something like a .symlink file
in each directory where there are symlinks with the contents pointing
back to the actual file. Rockbox could transparently deal with those
just like files. Isn't that kinda how Win98 handled long file names?
